Suggest for Leaders: Reign Dates

Recommended Posts

Have you ever found the wrong leader shows up for the wrong scenario? The current mechanic the game uses is that is chooses the leader born closest to the date of the scenario. However, I suggest introducing Reign Dates - start and end dates for a leader's reign. Say, for example, you had Wilhelm II of Germany as a leader. Wilhelm was born in 1856, but you had a scenario set in 1880. In real history, Wilhelm didn't come to power until 1888. However, in this scenario, Wilhelm would be the leader of Germany due to his birthdate. However, if you set the begin of his reign to 1888, then he wouldn't come to power until 1888, just like real life. Say you also wanted to add the end of his reign to be 1918 - come 1918, his reign would end.

With the reign system, the problem of having the wrong leader for the wrong scenario would end. You could add ever US president, and because of the Reign system, they would each be able to take power in order. Tired of having Abraham Lincoln in charge of the US in 1836? The Reign system can end that!

Now, what if you don't enter a start date or end date? The game could simply resort to its original design, that being the system of choosing a leader based on their birth date.

I, personally, think this is a good idea, and I hope Lukasz sees it and considers it.

Interesting idea. But remember that Lukasz has to add the code for the reign start AND reign end.  So who knows when he would work on it.

Not sure how busy he is, and I certainly wouldn't want to bother him, but I certainly think it would be a good idea to clean up some of the leader gore we tend to get

Maybe he can get the forum to work for him or something like that. Someone can send their work of countries.

 

Also, i think it would also require tracking down dynasties if we're talking about monarchies that didn't exist in the first place. It needs a lot of people and teamwork. If this forum wants it, i can try to take a part for some dynasties. I can't mod, so i guess i would just write the dynasties and possible candidates for nonexistent countries.

I'm not sure what you're on about, all I'm suggesting is that leaders can have set dates of when they come to power and leave power. It could even be edited for custom leaders.

 But wouldn't that require adding a ton of leaders?

Not necessarily, if a leader's reign ends and there's no leader immediately following them then there can just be no leader in that period lol

Or maybe he can add family lines like Hasburgs. This way, he can add things like royal marriages too.

      We already have ground units so why not airplanes?
      Make them unlocked after reaching a certain age and with a high level of technology, you can build them but they're very expensive and can break easily in battle, you need an Airport building to construct and store your planes, you can then select them and choose a province to either defend it (gives a defense bonus to your ground units) or attack it (gives an attack bonus to your ground units), they would mainly be used for support, and the more planes you have the higher the bonus is, but there's a limit of how many planes can be in a certain province, and if there are enemy planes in the province your planes are, then the bonuses will be lowered and the planes will engage in battle.

      Welllll, these are some of my ideas to improve the game:
      -better trade request: I was playing with Nazi Germany and I had all provinces of Greater German Reich exept for two siberian provinces owned by British Raj. I was the first in the leaderboard and Raj was 2th. I couldn't risk too much so I asked him to do a trade request: he gave me that 2 provinces and I would gave him 10.000.000 money. He refused.... I asked him another time with more of 10 million but he still refused. So I would like that trade request'll be better. For example with provinces trading. Also I've noticed that AI except for coalitions doesn't do trade request at all
      -Add a brush tool in the game, so we can select multiple provinces and build buildings/raise happiness/stability ecc in one time
      -Add a brush tool into scenario editor into relations so we can select a country and raise or decrease relations of multiple countries in one time
      -better wars: damn... how can it be possible that Pakistan conquers all of China.... or that Poland and Belgium can destroy Nazi Germany
      -select ideologies of our vassals when we create them
      -improve the importance of ideologies because sometimes it happens that third reich is friend with UK and France but is enemy with Italy, or that USA and URSS are friends
      -to add new editors like the goverment creator or to add suggested owners into a province instead to do it into AOC files because it's easier to make mistakes
      -better alliances: I've noticed that AI never makes alliances with 3 or more members. Also In the game you can't edit the name of your alliance (I think)
      -better colonies: as others have already said to give a name to your colonies like name of the nation + name of the region colonized like: Italian Guyana or Belgian South East Asia. Also to create a new tipe of vassal (the colony)
      -and lastly to add revolutionary risk into the scenario editor instead to set to 0% the level of happiness
      I hope you enjoyed at least one of these ideas and that at least one of these will be done.
      Sorry for mistakes
